Photo of a Silverfish

Silverfish preferred habitat are dark damp places like attics, bathrooms and kitchens and are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing.

They feed on linen and even glue found in books and wallpaper as well as dead insects.

Problems Caused by Silverfish

Silverfish do not spread any known diseases and are not venomous to humans.

They will damage wallpaper in order to consume the paste. Silverfish can also cause damage to tapestries. Other substances they may eat include cotton, dead insects, linen, silk, or even their own exuvia (moulted exoskeleton).

During famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics.
